to albany... and beyond!

Sometimes it's just nice to have a little change of pace and change your surroundings, even if it's just for a little while. So last weekend we made our escape to Albany, NY. Deb had promised to show us good times in her home town and we were not disappointed.

Our day started early, and I couldn't resist wandering around the house and capturing the light.

One of the best parts of the day was checking out the farmer's market in Troy. I was too distracted to take any pictures while we were actually there, but remembered to snap a few before we consumed all our goodies.

Isn't that a gorgeous spread? There were so many bakeries that it was hard to choose which one to buy from. We ended up getting a baguette from one vendor, and a beautiful strawberry-rhubarb tart from another. There may have been a few other treats that didn't last long enough to make it into this picture...

The boy took quite a few pictures as we were wandering around the city, but they haven't been developed yet. This is the one "city" shot I got in. Apparently I'm much more drawn to pictures of food and pretty glass bottles than buildings. Surprise, surprise!
